COP 26 8th November 2pm Tower Base South
I am very honoured to announce that I will be performing and participating in the international climate change conference taking place in Glasgow this November.
Selected after six months with a three tier selection process to present my production “Into the Amazon”
‘Into the Amazon’ with my field recordings of the natural environment and traditional singing of a Xavante Indian community integrated within the musical compositions the production transmits to the audience through the vehicle of a concert an experience of a day from dawn to dusk in an Indian village in the Amazon forest of Brazil.
I am also going to be releasing a single which will be aired at Cop26, combined with remarkable images by the award winning photographer and fellow Trustee, Sue Cunningham .
Further to this performance through the charitable trust “The Indigenous People’s Cultural Support Trust ” registered charity number : 1050461 which I founded in 1995 I am able to provide support to the Xavante community in the form of small grants. In the last two years it has enabled me help fund a cultural film produced by a Xavante camera man , to purchase a water pump , and make smaller grants helping families during the Covid pandemic should it be in the bulk purchase of food stuffs prior to a lock down or medication on being discharged from hospital.
The charity is small with three trustees, no employees or overheads and this ensures that all donations support whatever it is that requires funding at any time.
